Well, of course, nurture. But if you were raised to be frugal, can you ever not be frugal?  Doesn't frugality feel genetic?   If you have been fortunate in life to move from poverty to working poor or working poor to lower middle class or even middle middle class (the only socio-economic… MORE

About this Cook
I've been retired for about a year and LOVE retirement so far! I have three children: two boys and a girl, all grown. Five grands, all grandsons, ages almost eighteen to just turned nine.
My favorite things to cook
I cook for one or two most of the time and like to prepare multiple servings and either eat 'em up over a couple of days, or use a foodsaver to freeze the leftovers. We try to watch the sodium and cholesterol so we eat a lot of vegetables and very few pre-packaged foods. As a general rule, we try to avoid purchasing anything with ingredients we can't pronounce or very l-o-n-g ingredient lists.

Pork Fried Rice
Made this to use leftover Grilled Turkey Tenderloin and leftover brown/wild rice. Used, in this order. Two eggs, scrambled flat, removed from pan, then sliced thin. Onions, carrots, mushrooms. Then broccoli, orange sweet pepper, shredded cabbage. Soy sauce, turkey, rice, eggs. Yummy!

I'm surprised that so many, even those who grew up with pear salad, find the combo odd or weird. Doesn't anyone eat fresh Bartlett pears with cheddar cheese? For a snack or light lunch or dessert? I like pears and cheese even better than apples and cheese!

Jalapeno Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs
Very good. Next time I will leave out the mustard, or use much less, or sub a bit of vinegar. Just too many flavors competing, for me. I wanted to taste more of the cheese and bacon but felt that the mustard competed and didn't really add to the overall flavors.
